IHS Workshop: “Liberalism and the Problem of Lettered Exclusion in Late-Nineteenth-Century Colombia”
Mon, March 21, 2011 • 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM • GAR 4.100
Institute for Historical Studies (IHS) presents a workshop by Dr. Jason McGraw (Ph.D. University of Chicago, 2006), assistant professor of history at Indiana University, titled "Liberalism and the Problem of Lettered Exclusion in Late-Nineteenth-Century Colombia."
A scholar of slavery, colonialism, and emancipation in the Atlantic world, McGraw's current research project is on black workers in Caribbean Colombia from the abolition of slavery in the 1850s to the 1910s. He examines how issues of local politics, labor struggles, and popular religion shaped ideas of citizenship in this context.
His published articles include “Purificar la nación: eugenesia, higiene y renovación moral-racial de la periferia del Caribe colombiano, 1900-1930,” in Revista de Estudios Sociales 27 (August, 2007).
Responder: Seth Garfield, Associate Professor of History, UT Austin.
